With a background in endurance running and cycling, Joe came to yoga asana initially as a way to complement his training for ultra distance running events. He adopted a short daily practice from the outset, and through this was inspired to take up a meditation practice, joining a local Zen group with which he continues to sit on a regular basis.
After several years he made the decision to devote his energies more fully to these practices, ending his participation in competitive sports and eventually embarking on his initial Yoga teacher training. He is a committed Ashtanga practitioner, drawn to the ritual, discipline and ultimately the introspective nature of the practice through its focus on the breath, posture and gaze.
Joe teaches accessible led classes using the framework of the Ashtanga Primary Series, as well as Hatha Yoga classes, both of which incorporate principles of physical alignment coupled with internal focus and concentration, helping his students to develop a relevant, sustainable and skillful practice.
Joe became a registered yoga teacher in 2016, and continues his study and practice of Yoga under the watchful eye of his teacher, Joey Miles. He has also attended in depth trainings with other well respected international Ashtanga Yoga teachers.
